What Is HardiePlank?Created by the James Hardie company, HardiePlank is a cement fibre material that’s intended for use on a building’s exterior. It is composed of cellulose fibres, cement and sand. It is heavier and thicker than traditional vinyl siding, making it a more durable option for buildings that experience strenuous weather conditions, such as those near the ocean or in high-fire areas.
